again, the Class of 1969 won the UA Civic
Association's "Best Reunion Float"
our creative, animated, well-populated and
spirited float. We owe a HUGE thank you to
Dave Cooper, who designed and directed
the construction of this amazing float.
theme this year was "UA - There's
No Place Like Home," and our float
illustrated that our class now represents
almost all 50 states and several global nations,
but they still love to come home to UA for
their class reunions! Thirty-two classmates
walked alongside the float in gold t-shirts
and ruby slippers (made by Dave!), and demonstrated
their class spirit with line dances and singing
as we made our way down Northwest Boulevard.
Nearly 45 others rode on the float.
you to Dave Cooper, our Float Chairman, and
everyone who worked on the construction of
the float and to those who participated by
riding or walking the parade route. Our class
spirit was evident, and during our 40-year
reunion weekend, we proved that there truly
IS "no place like HOME."
